I’ve been forced to slow down. Heck, I laid out flat for a couple days! This quilt has been sitting in a closet for a couple years unbound. I got the binding on before I got sick, luckily, so I could start hand stitching it down. Sorry for the slightly blurry photo. It’s too dark now to retake.
When I felt better, I finished the quilting on a Gelli print and then put together the pyramid pouch yesterday.
I always wanted one made with my own artwork.
It makes me smile. I often make for everyone else which is fun; but sometimes we need a little gift to ourselves.
I wasn’t even up for my yoga or lunch with friends today. I did have to go out for a couple things. It was pretty messy.
My husband’s flight to Labrador did make it out and safely there, thank goodness. He sent a puck with snow and said he’d arrived at the North Pole as there was no snow here when he left. I sent this one back. And it’s his 60th birthday. I gave him a lazyboy before he left. We’ll do something later. Another close family member is also suddenly facing some challenges. Again, what a week.
I’ve been cutting scrappy strips for a baby quilt, definitely a happy thing.
It’s from the Missouri Star Quilt co. And that sketch is the whole quilt not just a block.
I’m cutting lots of 2 1/2” strips for the center that is made from 4, 16 patch blocks. I want it scrappy. This will leave strips for another quilt, not such a bad thing.
Of course there’s been some knitting going on too.
An over the shoulders cowl made with 2 fine yarns held together.
It looks larger and brighter than in real life. The basket is very small. The color is more of a very soft heather.
And here is the book that I read. I’ve put off reading it for a while, not sure if I’d like it but I did. A good read.
I picked up a salad and some cooked, frozen shrimp, an easy supper. Think I’ll find a movie and stitch on that binding.
Have a great weekend!
